AMD executives have confirmed that AMD will ship its next generation Ryzen 7000 processors this quarter. This means that the Ryzen 7000 will hit the streets at the end of September.
Previously, AMD said the Ryzen 7000 would ship in the second half of the year, but the company scaled back its release schedule in a conference call with analysts. AMD representatives indicated that the change in timing should be taken as a clarification and not as a change in the company’s roadmap.
AMD explained that Intel’s unexpected catastrophic loss in the quarter was primarily due to Intel’s implementation, and not due to broader industry problems, as AMD achieved record revenue for the eighth consecutive quarter.
The good times look set to continue, too.
CEO Dr. Lisa Su said AMD’s fourth quarter will be highlighted by the company’s new lineup of 5nm products, which we’re very excited about.
These include the Ryzen 7000 range and also next generation Radeon RDNA3 graphics cards. AMD expects the new RDNA3 GPUs to deliver more than 50 percent improvements on a generation or generation basis, a combination of design plus 5nm process technology.
Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be introduced into motherboards that feature AMD’s new AM5 socket.
The Ryzen 7000 should run at over 5GHz, using the new AM5 socket, according to previous AMD disclosures. In January, when AMD first announced the Ryzen 7000 and its Zen 4 architecture, the company set the second half of 2022 as the launch date for the new chip.
At Computex, AMD executives set fall as the time frame for the launch of its new processor. Now, it will be ready by the end of September.
AMD executives won’t say exactly when the new Ryzen 7000 chips will be released or if they’ll generate revenue in the third quarter. However, the names of four chipsets – Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X – have leaked on AMD’s own website, according to VideoCardz.
Unfortunately, key details such as price, base charges, and clock speeds are yet to be officially confirmed.
However, what AMD’s results tell us is that Ryzen’s momentum continues, and that PC makers and end customers continue to buy.
